While Hollywood awaits its Oscar nominations, the Golden Raspberry Awards list is out, highlighting what it deems as last year’s failures. However, some people are not entirely certain that this list is the best measure for the worst.
These are some reactions from Twitter:
The Razzies don’t even highlight interesting failures. The nominees are always, without fail, big-budget flops or tabloid targets.
The Razzies are already a farce, but nominating Dakota Johnson for anything "worst" is the sort of laziness that keeps them irrelevant.
And let’s be honest, if the #Razzies snubbed something like #TerminatorGenisys, I’m not sure how I can respect them as an organization.
In 1980, both The Shining and Dressed to Kill were nominated for Razzies. ?
Halle Berry showed up to the Razzies, when she won worst Actress for Catwoman, with her Academy Award. Badass
Woo HOO! Survived the Razzies another year!
The one good thing about the Razzies is their (new?) Razzie Redeemer category, and the fact that Shyamalan & Stallone are nominated in it.
